The following is the best & safe method to avoid pregnancy:- First, one should know the duration of the cycle, i.e. first day of the last menstrual bleeding to the first day of the present menstrual bleeding. This is the duration of the menstrual cycle.
Ovulation approximately occurs in the middle of the cycle, i.e. duration of the cycle – (minus) 14 days (this also varies).
My dear Joy James I don’t know how long you have been married that you are getting worried about not having kidsexcept of course it’s both your decision to go for kids immediately
Calculation of fertile period: The shortest cycle minus 18 days=1st day of fertile period. The longest cycle minus 10 days= last day of fertile period.
Ex: if a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle [26days] minus18days=8th day. The longest cycle [31days] minus 10days=21st day.
Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period.
You could google more if you wish. I see no reason for a safe period if you are married. Children are a blessing from God and He gives as He wills. If you ain’t married why not do it God’s way and abstain till you get married? IT even makes ur partner appreciate you more. I think
Ovulation – the release of an egg by an ovary – usually occurs about 14 days before a woman’s period begins. That’s why it can be difficult to predict. It may occur on day 14 of a regular 28-day menstrual cycle, but most women do not consistently have 28-day cycles. (Day one of the menstrual cycle is the first day of bleeding.) Also, women who have regular menstrual cycles e day each month.
In total, a woman has a good chance of becoming pregnant from unprotected vaginal intercourse over the course of about seven days of her menstrual cycle – as long as six days before ovulation, the day of ovulation, and, possibly, the day after ovulation. She is less likely to become pregnant from unprotected intercourse in the day or two following ovulation, but it is possible.
One should not rely on predicting ovulation as a method of birth control because it may be very difficult to do accurately. Young women often have irregular cycles – each cycle may be of a different number of days.
How una see am?
For a long time, calculating your ovulation ( because that’s when you can get pregnant when you and your spouse get together)accurately has been pretty difficult; but now with the Billings method, you don’t need ‘scientific calculators’ to get a very accurate result – through monitoring of your body signs.
The book is very cheapand written in very readable and simple ways which doesn’t require your giving yourself headaches b4 you understand the same.They are available in CSS bookshops nationwide. The billings method is even particularly useful when you want to avoid ‘mistakes’during breastfeeding because menses don’t occur at that time for you to predict ovulation using ‘present’ methods.
